INTENDED USE: Our "Do Everything" deep section carbon wheelset. This wheelset is ideal for Time Trials, Triathlons, and also spot-on for sportives, bunch-racing, and general road work. For confident bike handlers! (If you're unsure if that's you .. then go for our 50UC wheelset (slightly shallower for those crosswinds!)
Now in it’s third year of evolution - The 58UC continues to be one of the most popular wheelsets we produce and is an ideal upgrade for athletes seeking quality British handbuilt wheels on a ‘sensible’ budget.
Designed to be aero, to be strong and at 1665 grams in the standard “aerolight” version (with a 1550 gram option available too) ........ to be extremely light too.
Your wheels will be hand built to order here in the UK by Andy Morgan, owner and founder of k1 wheels. Turnaround time is most often 7-11 days. (current build times are shown at checkout).
It is aimed at those riders who prefer an ultra modern rim profile - critically without going too wide to cause frame clearance issues! The handling characteristics and strength of modern U rims is superb - even in pretty serious crosswinds - especially when compared to the V-rims of only a few years ago.
At 25mm wide, it is fully optimised for more modern bikes and is ideal for tyres from 25c, 28c right right up to 40c and beyond. Please make sure your frame can take a wider rim if you go for this option! Or contact us if you’re not sure... we do like to help our customers get it right first time.
The 58UC wheelset is ideal for UK roads and descents in all but the hottest weathers. If you are intending to ride/race very long descents in hot weathers (such as alpine summer sportives) or just want a more familiar braking feel - you may want to look at our full-carbon filament wound wheels.. and please do read our page on safe braking and care for your carbon wheels HERE
